PPG Achieves Reduction of Marine Liner Spray

International. By electrostatically applying PPG SIGMAGLIDE® 2390 antifouling coating, EDR Antwerp Shipyard achieved a 40% reduction in overspray.

The project was carried out on the submarine hull of Stena Line's RoRo Stena Transporter passenger ship and is the second successful electrostatic application project for EDR.

"Shipowners and shipyards are encouraged to seek innovative solutions to meet stricter environmental regulations and achieve their sustainability goals," said Sijmen Visser, PPG Sales Director, Marine EMEA, Protective and Marine Coatings.

Electrostatic application has increased transfer efficiency compared to airless spraying, resulting in reductions in overspray and waste, and combined with the coating's low VOC emissions provides cleaner operation and an improved working environment for applicators.

"Electrostatic application increases the climate window in which painting activities can be carried out, as well as significantly reducing overspray," said Philippe Trouillard, EDR's Commercial Director.

"It's impressive to see how the charged paint droplets are attracted to the surface of the container almost like a magnet. Just look at the dock floors at the end of the project to see how much paint has been prevented from disappearing into the environment. Thanks to a cleaner operation, we have spent less time masking the vessel and covering the dock, saving valuable time and costs."
